Make Your Own Fruit Bars

Blueberry Rye Bars by Anna Brones

I am excited to have my latest recipe up over on Adventure Journal!

It’s a recipe for Blueberry Rye Bars, perfect as a packable snack, and a recipe that takes full advantage of summer berries. In fact, you can switch out the berries in this for whatever you have on hand. I’ve even made them with dried figs.

Most fruit bar recipes are heavy on brown sugar and butter, but this one uses honey and olive oil instead. You can catch the full recipe here.

Friday Photo: A Taste of Summer Fruit

With a mid-winter burst of warm weather and sunshine, I’ve gotten started thinking about spring and summer. Sure, it’s a little premature, but there’s nothing better than dreaming about walking barefoot and picking berries out in the country. So here’s a photo to celebrate all that I love about the warmer months… that will come eventually.

Greening Your Kitchen: Cocoon

leave a comment »

Bringing fresh herbs into your kitchen not only means you’ll have a delectable choice of seasonings, but it also allows you to bring some greenery inside. In fact, I’ve got overflowing pots of thyme, basil and rosemary surrounding my cooking space. But they could probably use a sleek organization system like this one.

Swedish designer Måns Salomonsen has created this ingenious design, called Cocoon, that puts a focus on healthy eating, placing your fruits and herbs all in the same place. Check out more pictures of the design here.

Of course until this beautiful design becomes available, you can still make your own herb garden, and all it entails is a nice looking pot, a few herb plants and some planting soil. Here are some easy to follow directions on re-nest.
